Surrounded by change and tasked with finding solutions to evolving problems, sales enablement leaders try to anticipate shifts to drive effectiveness across their organizations. With their ever-increasing scope covering technology, tools, sales onboarding, key performance indicators (KPIs), sales readiness training, and go-to-market (GTM) launches, sales enablement leaders need focus, so we’ve highlighted some key Sales Enablement sessions at this year’s ATD International Conference & EXPO.
Whether your company already has an established sales enablement function or it’s an area that you are formalizing within your organization, check out both the strategic and practical advice from our mix of returning and new speakers.
Customer FocusIn this ever-changing buying landscape, digital plays a key role and there’s less face time with prospective buyers. Sellers need to develop new skills to meet the customer’s needs to be successful. Learn more about the various seller strategies that drive customer engagement, and explore ways to break down the barriers to selling and enhance customer receptivity both online and in-person.
AnalyticsTo ensure programs drive toward desired outcomes and impact the business, sales enablement leaders review data across various sales enablement technologies. To get buy-in to scale current programs across hundreds or thousands of sales reps and create future programs, learn how to shape your data insights to quantify and effectively convey the value of the enablement program in a way that matters to each stakeholder.
